Amazon won't call its corporate employees in the U.S. and some other countries back to the office until Jan. 3, the company announced Thursday morning.
(The company still hasn't announced a vaccine mandate, unlike Google, Facebook and Microsoft.)
Most tech giants have now said they'll allow their employees to work remotely past September, which for much of the year was a popular return-to-office target. But since the delta variant began spreading in recent weeks, several companies have delayed their re-openings into the fall or winter.
At this point, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Uber are all targeting October as a return-to-office date.
Other companies have gone the same direction as Amazon and told their employees they can work remotely until 2022. Those include DoorDash, Roblox, Salesforce, SAP, ServiceNow, Twilio, Asana, Lyft and Airbnb.
